Grain Freight Project – Latham Rd & Harvest Reminders

The first seal of Latham Road into CBH took place last Friday and with harvest upon us this is timely with trucks being able to use Latham Road to enter and exit from CBH.

A second seal (asphalt) will take place in January/February 2019 which will complete this project.

For those that want an insight into how our roads are sealed, see the links below to footage taken last Friday:-

REMINDER FOR MOTORISTS

Motorists are reminded that there will be increased heavy freight traffic on local roads including self-propelled machinery and towed farm equipment.

The Shire of Narembeen suggests that all motorists use their headlights during the day so that other road users can see them.

Farmer’s are also reminded when working into dusk and at night time, it is important too have all flashing lights on machinery and vehicles in working order to ensure maximum visibility to other road users.

Finally it is also vitally important to consider the risk of fatigue and take extra care when driving home after working long hours in the paddock.  We have a shared responsibility for safety on our roads, so all drivers need to be careful and vigilant during the busy harvest season.
